When you are tired from doing work, don't pick up your phone to scroll mindlessly. Instead take Real Rest like walking, or a few pushups, or just looking out of the window. This will replenish your energy and will feel refreshing instead of tiring the brain even more.
Practice isn't something you do when you are good at something, it's something you do to become good.
Happiness has been proven to increase productivity and efficiency in doing any kind of work, as it gives a sense of purpose and exitement. So try to stay happy to improve productivity.
Consider consuming caffiene early in the day to focus better on your work
Our brains remember unfinished tasks better than finished ones, so that we continue to think about our unsolved problems. This can be used to our benefit in many ways. For example, take a break for some time from a difficult probelm. Surprisingly you may have the answer to it while you resume it some time later.
"Common Sense isn't common action. "
Many times we know the answer to a solution from common sense but we don't do what is needed to be done.
Like for example we know that a headache can be cured by putting our phone aside and taking a break, but we continue to use our phones anyway. So do things which seem common sense, instead of undermining them due to their simplicity.
Most humans have trouble focusing on one task. While we attribute this to our laziness, it actually has an evolutionary reason. Early humans always had to stay aware of their surroundings for potential danger (like a tiger lurking around). So our brains have evolved to always have their attention scattered to be aware of their surroundings, hence making it hard for us to focus on one single task.
So don't go too hard on yourself and try to improve your focus progreseively.
Your focus is the most valuable asset you have. You can literally change your life by choosing where to devote your focus.
So spend it wisely.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
